I have one more week before vacation and daughter coming to live with me for four weeks. I would want to do a lot of organizing and cleaning this week, it would be really nice to start our vacation together with a clean house. As I worked hard friday and saturday with moving furniture and cleaning floors, I spent yesterday with not so physical stuff. I sorted screws and a lot of small things that has been laying around in boxes and drawers... I sorted them in different boxes and now I will not have five places to search in when I need a nail or a screw... talked to a friend who said that it was perfect work for an eleven-year on a rainy day, they often love sorting stuff.... and yes that was right but too late. There are plenty of other clutter to organize so Iīll save something for her.
This morning I am watching like a hawk on the car inspection booking online. I have learned that there is often new times to book early in the morning for the same day, so far I have had no luck and I have booked a time next monday - that means that I will drive around in a car imposed with a driving ban...I canīt afford that really but have no choice if I canīt get an earlier appointment. So I am "hawking"...
This week I will try to be really egoistic and take good care of me. Eat right, put exercise before work, attend AA meetings... it is going to be interesting to see how hard it will hit my conscience.
The weather forecast says rain, rain, rain with warnings for rain levels that sewers might have hard to deal with. It has not rained this much in June since 1901. I took advantage of a few sun hours yesterday and mowed my lawn, yipee!
This week will be soup week. I get my salary today and will go shopping for food this afternoon. LOTS of vegetables! Todayīs soup is mushroom soup. I still have funnel chanterelles since last summer and the new ones will come in a month or so , itīs time to empty the storage...
I feel inspired to live on a small budget this week. all the money I have will be used on vacation with daughter.
